Like a train out of control, the growth of technology will speed up in the coming years. Since the early 2000s, Americans online has gone from five to nine out of ten, the ratio of having a tablet increased from 3% in 2010 to 5% in this year, the ratio of having a smartphone greatly increased from 35% in 2011 to 75% in this year.
To totally achieve that Internet of Things (IoT) makes everything electric is equipped with communication funcation, all the pieces are ready. The coming of 5G cellular communications enable IoT to extraordinary grow is one of the most important development.
This is a perfect topic and a key of the keynote for SSI’s annual Technology Issue. Vivek Khemka, CTO of DISH, a satellite services provider, stated that during last month’s Total Tech Summit in Orlando, Fla.
Khemka introduced how DISH quietly spent $20 billion to buy a lot of icensed cellular network spectrum in detail. It has more of the low-, mid- and high-band licensed spectrum than any of the major mobile carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon. And there is no legacy support obligation.
These measures already make DISH become main participator of the coming 5G cellular network, it will affect how integrators and security dealers to deal with the solutions of design, installation and monitoring of everything from smart homes to commercial properties to large industrial.
In term of Khemka, mobile data has increased 238% in the last two years. He said that we already arrived at the state of network congestion, it all attributed to spectrum.
5G will come ture over the 12 months in the future (following final legislative approvals), but Khemka said that the market needed about two or three years to reach the sandard of wireless communication.
The merits of the technology are amazing. They include transmitting at 100Mbps speed compared to today’s average hardwired network speed of 18.7Mbps, latency of just 1 millisecond versus 50ms for 4G, accommodating 1,000 times as many users per square kilometer, and great reliability and stability.
“I predict 75% of all 5G network spectrum will be used to transmit video signals. And IoT most directly transforme the four industries are business and manufacturing, retail, healthcare, and security. As a security professional, I think about the possibilities of how 5G-fortified IoT could open up opportunities for new video and security system solutions such as robotics, drones, monitored services, mobile applications, health-related offerings, smart parking, building automation, smart homes and more. Many integrators will gain a lot of portion of revenue from IoT soon. So get in the IoT technology train now before it leaves the station and ride it to the destination of your company’s future success.” said Khemka.
